week 36 update.

Woah, time sure flies !
Alhamdulillah.

At 9 months pregnant, I am having a hard time keeping my cool. I've gotta admit I am more nervous than excited.

Thanks Google Images !
I have noticed that my belly has dropped slightly, which means that Mini Mel's is slowly making her way down my pelvis.
This must be the reason I have been experiencing persistent menstrual like cramps along with lower back pains. Walking gets slightly uncomfortable at times. I have to adjust to walking at a slower pace than usual. Mr. Sunshine would be happy to hear this because he keeps asking me why I need to walk so fast everyday. Err, I am just a natural 'fast walker' ?

Baby squirms a lot.
Mummy pees a lot.
Haha. Ok, not funny.

I am far from having the burst of energy a.k.a 'nesting instinct' some expectant mums are said to acquire around this time. Instead I feel like I am getting lazier as the days go by. If only I could laze around at home these days. But I know that's just unhealthy and I need to keep moving especially during this last month of pregnancy, and that's what I plan to (try to) do. InshaAllah. :)

Thanks Google Images !

Alhamdulillah so far, my feet and legs are appearing slightly larger than usual but they're not edematous and there are no signs of stretch marks on my belly. YET.
It's either I'm blessed with really thick skin or the fact that I have been religiously applying olive oil on my belly since I found out I was preggers is working.
But then again, I might be speaking too soon.

I don't think we're allowed to have jeweleries on us in the labour room, so instead of waiting until the last minute and risk misplacing them, I have just removed both my engagement and wedding rings. Well, my fingers have also puffed up a bit so it's better that I removed them now rather than having trouble removing them later on.
I just hope they'd still fit me after the delivery. Hehe.

I have more or less one month to go ! InshaAllah.

Sugarmouse: Hehe I am enjoying (syok sendiri maybe,hehe) the fact that I am able to document my pregnancy experiences, so that my kid(s) and myself will be able to read them ! My posts are nothing compared to what you write, so thanks so much for dropping by here ever so often ! :)

Dinashuz: Hi Dina ! Aww, it's ok I still have a couple more weeks to go so they might make an appearance too. Hope not though !

Hi hi hi Melissa.. thanks for checking out my blog *blush* malu2... im new in blogging hehe... pardon the lack of updates/info. hehe

nways, u havent had any contractions yet? uhmm, as for me dear, it does feel a lil bit like period pain/abdominal pain, coupled with back pain, n ada feeling2 mcm nak kena food poisoning pun iya. but my doctor said real labour wud often start as a lower back pain, n d pain will wrap over to d front, something like dat... hehe.. hope it helps! but then, maybe ur one of those lucky ones who doesnt have to deal with braxton hicks... terus rasa labour contraction trus! much better... nways, do keep us all updated.. we're both having Ramadhan babies!!! slmt berpuasa dear!
